Horse Limping?

My horse came out from the pasture 2 weeks ago limping on his left front. I immediately took him to the vet, who, upon examination, found no heat, nor abnormal pulse, however there was swelling on his ankle. I put him on bute for a week and took him off of it and he was still limping. Currently I have his leg wrapped snugly as I don't quite know what else to do for him. Anyone know what might by the cause of this or any cures?

Possibly an abscess.

I'd agree. Have you trimmed him?

Did the vet take x-rays? How bad is the limp?

He was trimmed a week before the lameness. The vet did not x-ray him, so in a week I have an appointment to take him back to the vet's.

Trimmed a week before - is it possible angles & such were changed too drastically? But it could have been just one of those things - he strained it tripping in the paddock or some such.
